Last Modified: 2020-11-26
I am using the latest version of Outlook 365 (Version 2011 Build 13426.20274) and have several Office 365 mail account (e.g. "Exchange"). Each one is connected to an OST data file, which Outlook put on drive C:. These files are rather large (over 10gb together) and I would like to move them to a different drive.

What is a safe and easy way to do this?

Thank you.
